  • Combine the apples, ½ cup water, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg, and ¼ tsp ground cloves in a medium size pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook for approximately 30 minutes. Stir often. The apples should be soft, not mushy.

NUTRITION DISCLAIMER 
We like to use a variety of apples for the best flavor. Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, and Fuji ar a good combination.
Slice the apples as thin or as thick as you like, just make sure that they’re cut the same size so they cook evenly.
If you like a sweeter applesauce, add 1 tbsp of coconut or brown sugar at a time and taste. Continue to add by the tbsp until you get the desired sweetness.
Feel free to omit the spices if you want a plain applesauce.
